Thanksgiving is just two days away, Yippee! I thought I would share my Granny‘s Dressing recipe. I have great memories of her sitting in her moo moo at the kitchen table, chopping the vegetables and stirring the big bowl of moist crumbled corn bread. I still use her recipe every Thanksgiving. 

Granny’s Cornbread Dressing 

1 pan of Cornbread
2-3 biscuits
4 boiled eggs
½ teaspoon black pepper
2 slices of bread
30 to 32 ounces of chicken broth
1 teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon sage or poultry seasoning

In a large bowl: Crumble cornbread, bread and biscuits, Then pour hot broth over bread mixture (if needed add a little hot water). Next, cover and let bread mixture steam for a few minutes.

Saute:
1 cup bell pepper
1 cup green onion
1 cup celery
1 cup white onion

Stir bread, sauteed vegetables, and seasoning together in large bow. Next chip boiled eggs and stir into dressing mixture. Put 9 x 12 inch pan and bake at 375 degrees approximately 30 to 50 minutes.
Optional: If making your own broth and want chicken in dressing, then you will debone the chicken after boiling, cut up and place pieces in with dressing mixture and place in pan.
